TTV AdEraser aims to remove livestream ads as well as add some useful features to our favourite streaming site.
What is TTV AdEraser?
TTV AdEraser is a Chrome extension that aims to remove ads from twitch.tv. It replaces the original stream player with a custom embed one, which eliminates ads and enhances the twitch player and user interface. The extension supports viewing of ads in a mini player to continue supporting favourite streams without full-screen distractions. It also tackles the 'purple screen', a new feature twitch has added to embedded streams. The developer continuously updates and adds new features to the extension.
TTV AdEraser aims to remove livestream ads from twitch.tv by replacing the original stream player with a customized embed player. But that's not all the extension does. This project also adds further quality of life features to the twitch player and ui so that you can enjoy your favourite streams the best way possible. I am trying to add more features to the set as frequently as possible and would like to encourage you to leave your ideas in the comments or on GitHub. If you find any bugs or things that don't quite work the way you expect them to please let me know by creating a new issue on GitHub.
v.1.2 aims to remove the "purple screen" that twitch now shows on all embedded streams instead of ads. This version also includes bug fixes and some small new features.
v.1.1 of the extension lets you view ads in a mini player on the bottom left corner of the page. That way you can support your favourite streams while not being bothered to watch ads full screen.
